Santa Monica

Full view of the Pacific Park amusement park in the Santa Monica pier. I've never been on that rollercoaster even though I am a fan. The ferris wheel must a have a nice view.

 

Processing:

 

Imagenomic Noiseware for noise reduction. Just got it, and it is very nice. Beats trying to eliminate noise in PS.

 

Photomatix of -2, 0, +2.

 

Photoshop:

- remove strong blue color cast by tinkering with the blue and red channels in curves.

- unsharp mask using radius 140 for contrast.

- blue filter on sky.

- enhance reds on the water using red channel curves.

- overlay mode layer for contrast.

- curves to lighten house and green canopy.
